The Municipal Chief Executive for Tema West Municipal Assembly, Hon. Anna Naa Adukwei Addo, toured some parts of the eleven (11) electoral areas as part of her activities to socialise with residents and identify problems confronting the various electoral areas, which began on the 15th of August, 2022 and ended on the 18th of August, 2022.
Hon. Anna Naa Adukwei Addo’s first visit was to the Halcrow and Railway electoral zones behind the Cocoa Village gate wall, where a number of structures had been built on the sewage line.
She addressed the shop owners and informed them that there is a blockage in the sewer line especially the ones behind the Cocoa Village at Community 2 leading to an overflow and unbeatable stench with its accompanying health dangers. She mentioned that officers from the Assembly had engaged the shop owners of the affected structures and discussed the need to pulldown their structures.
Hon. Anna Naa Adukwei Addo reiterated that, the structures on the sewer lines will be removed to pave way for repair works to be carried out on the sewer line.
She further mentioned that the obstruction and overflow of the sewage line and chambers had resulted in effluent leaking into drains and surrounding shrubs. The team then went to the pumping station in community five to observe the activities.
The MCE’s second stop was in the Kassadjan electoral district, where she spoke with citizens. She informed people of her commitment to providing a street light to expedite security inside the electoral area through Assembly Member Hon. Opoku Sekyere.
